Define "gifted and talented".
4. 69A*s

Well I don't know I've never got that label despite getting 9a*s yet a girl who got A'sand b's is defined as g and t at my school?
6. Something similar at my school just says 6 A*/A grades for "enhanced g&t programme"
7. At my college I'm on the G&T programme with 1A* 8A's and 2B's and I have access to HE+ (Cambridge scheme) because of it. At the other local college, you need 5A*'s to be on their G&T scheme because it's a bigger college, it just depends where you go.

My college asks for a points average of 6.7 (A*=8 points, A=7 etc down to G=1, add all up and divide by no. of GCSEs you took) and my friend just missed out with 7A's and 4B's as she had an average of 6.65- my average is 6.91

There isn't a minimum

9. There is no quantitative definition for gifted and talented. It's not about how many A*s you get. She may be defined as gifted and talented because she did something extraordinarily well in one of her subjects. Just getting a A*s doesn't mean you've done something groundbreaking.
Or it could be a tactic to try to bring someone up to do better.I'd say: don't sweat that label, just do your best. In the end, that label isn't going to get you into a career easier than doing and showing good work will.EDIT: I didn't realise it was actually a scheme that has certain benefits. If it is truly important to you, then ask your school about it.
10. It's usually a GPA of 6.7.

I was G&T, there was no benefits

12. I am a so called "gifted and talented " student yet my GCSEs weren't 10 A*s. This label honestly doesn't mean you have get all A*'s. As long as you try your best you can't do anymore. I personally believe that GCSEs for example aren't true representations of your ability. What I'm trying to say is don't get hung up in needing certain grades to fulfil that title, just do your best.

Define "gifted and talented".
Think these groups tend to be the top 5% in standardised tests
That's what it was in our school apparently
17. G&T in Maths... got an A*, highest mark in the year.

However I only got A*A*AAAAAABBC

19. Didn't even realise this sort of programme existed lol. Guess I'm not gifted or talented then
20. most people are identified as g&t way before they take any exams, so there aren't any minimum grades. you can be g&t and get **** grades, and not g&t and get amazing grades
